 i spent some time on this this morning.  it's true that 12.1.0 builds, and
 the 1.75 builds, preserve the wake-on-lan options.  so this particular
 problem on 1.5 and xo-1 will go away in the next major release.

 but furthermore, daniel drake pointed out that the only time we'll see the
 condition described in set_wake_on_wlan() (of the interface being late to
 appear) is when we didn't have wake conditions set in the first place.  so
 i think the comment (which i wrote) about the possible bug is incorrect:
 if wake conditions are set, then the eth0 interface will be there
 immediately, and we'll be able to set them again.  if it doesn't appear
 right away, it's because we didn't have wake conditions before, so it's
 okay that we can't set any right now.

 thanks for making me think through, and test, that.
